    If anyone is still curiousÖ

    At the risk of revealing what may be considered state secrets, the straight dope (or as straight as it can be in H2O land) is that enabling MMS and FaceTime on an...

    I recently returned from three week a trip to NL, IT, DE, FR, and UK.

    I can't recall why, but I actually registered a RP account way back when, before I went with H2O. It looks like there can be some pretty good deals with the longer term plans they sell.

    Likewise.

    It would be nice, wouldn't it? But evidently, H2O can't be bothered to provide further clarification, and it has not made any news anywhere.

    I'm wondering if it fixes the cellular data issues some people had with 12.1.2 and 12.1.3.

    I've stayed on 12.1.1 due to that risk, but 12.1.4 fixes a couple zero day vulnerabilities.

    Uh huh. May want to ask people like Jim Balsillie, Mike Lazaridis, Padmasree Warrior, Olli Kallasvuo, Steve Ballmer, and Ed Colligan about that.

    Andy Rubin, too.

    No effect at all.

    Going forward, iOS 11 and later only supports 64-bit devices and apps.

    The iPhone 5c is not supported because it has a 32-bit A6 SoC, not because of the size of its flash storage.

    I don't think there's a clear cut explanation, nor is it black/white.

    It will appeal to a lot of iPhone users who have been waiting to upgrade to the "next gen" X-style phone, but have been scared off by the X/Xs pricing.
